Steve-- we've been tackling this from the nonprofit/community side over at GHRconnects: ghrconnects.org/coronavirus

Our "Business Resources" effectively just points to the Chamber's resources page, though we did add some nonprofit-specific resources there.

Mary that's fantastic!  I'm sure you all at United Way are playing a huge role in this recovery!  Let us know how we can help!

Will do-- it's been a huge lift to get our hotline live and scaled-up for the number of calls we're receiving, but having a common place to store community resources has been a big help. We're hoping to share data from our survey of nonprofit partners and aggregated needs from callers on the dashboard soon. 

Don't hesitate to email or tag me here if there's something we can signal-boost for you!
